Q & A

From an email...

Coupon Clipper: Ok, I have a few questions. Where do you get your online coupons? How on earth did you have all those TP and toothpaste coupons. I've been cutting the Sunday paper coupons but have no where near 16 coupons each????

And I just don't understand how your getting so much for free. I can see if the item is $1 and you can double your .50 coupon but how are you doing it otherwise???? I guess I'm not finding the great deals that you are and my mind cannot grasp it.

By the way, I love that you have a 2 liter of coke in all your pictures... do you still drink it for breakfast???? (Um, yes... my dirty little habit!)

Me: Look at the blogs that I have referred you to (my blog roll in the right hand column of my home page)- these blogs will give you the links to the online printable coupons when they describe their shopping trips. Often you just need to click on their link (usually highlighted). Or, they will let you know which week the particular coupon that they were using was in the newspaper. Andrea at Mommy Snacks is really good about that!

*If you are newer to clipping coupons you may not have some of the coupons that these blogs are referring to- do not get discouraged! Each coupon user has to start somewhere- soon, if you religiously buy your papers and clip your coupons, you will have ALL of the coupons that these blogs refer to.

As for the 10 TP coups... I have recently been getting 6 newspapers- I work the cost of my newspapers them my deals at CVS. I used a CVS $5 off of a $30 purchase coupon (plus $30 in FREE goodies)- that they sent to my email to buy them for FREE (my 5 newspapers were the $5 off from my coupon)- but you can find these types of printables at

So since I have multiple papers (6) I have 6 times the coupons. I know- it is a lot of thought up front-but it is awesome when I shop!
